Three different forms from my garden. I did not know the parents, but I think one of them are Trillium erectum

Karl,

That first one with the dark centre and the dark tips is very striking.  I'd imagine that you're pretty pleased with that one appearing in your garden.... I know I would.  As yet I've never had seed on anything other than rivale here.  Maybe one day! LOL
Cheers.

I'm going to jump in here with a seedling query. I sowed Trillium rivale seeds last autumn after storing them in the fridge for the summer. Something I now know is wrong. I readt that this year they produce a roost and next year a leaf. The pots are all showing leaves. Is this correct? How easy will it be to break the growth cycles?

Mark, you should be able to get a leaf the first year especially on rivale. What I do is get them into good soil as soon as possible and try and keep them growing over the summer. I usually find they will start to grow a second root soon, this is when I pot them on, just as that is developing.
Don't worry about growing cycles they have 4 or 5 yrs to sort that out :)
I will post a few pic of my seedlings when I find time to get the camera out.

Going back to what Karl has been saying about obtaining desirable forms of Trillium Sp. I can relate to what he saying I've had the same frustration obtaining forms of hepatica which a lot of people for some reason just won't share!  :o  :o  :o I've recently just split some of my Japanese Hepaticas and would much rather swap them with someone for another desirable plant, rather than sell them for some silly price or hold onto them! ....Queue the swapping offers lol

Dan I have collected Hepatica in several years and it is not easily to find the rare forms of that species. This forms a very expensive and many collectors will not sell of that forms, but if you have plants they have interesting in, there are a chance to trading.

I send three photos later this spring. Two of them I got from a lady for two yeas ago. She tolls me one of them maybe is flexipes forma walpolei. I have looked for a photo of that form, so I can be sure, but with any luck. Is there someone there can tell me, where I can find a photo of that form, or tell me; is that Trillium, on that photo I have sent; Trillium flexipex forma walpolei?
